Unable to find service manual for techs to use to fix amplifier

G'day
I bought an XMS503 AV Receiver about 18 months ago, new. Had some problems from the start with the sound cutting out and static would take over. This happened only a couple of times and because of one reason or another, I wasn't able to get the unit back to Strathfield in Hyde Park, Townsville, where I bought it. I haven't used it in about a year and I recently hooked it up and the problem is still there, only it is happening nearly every couple of minutes.
If you press the coaxial button on the remote, or switch it to another unit eg. vcr, then back again and the sound comes back. But after a couple of minutes the sound dissapears and the static comes back!
I put it into a repair shop and they charged me $55 to be able to not fix it. The guy said that he could not find the fault, said the manual volume button was also stuffed and that he needed the service manual or specs for the unit
Strathfield have shut down in Townsville and I have called Head Office and all they say is that their policy is to replace the unit if it is under warranty and if it is not.....too bad! They say there is no-one they know who can obtain the specs the techs need and simply don't want to know about my problem! This unit cost me around $500 and I have hardly used it, and I am not working, so $$$$ are few and far from each other. I was hoping to download the nescessary files but can find no reference for them anywhere. So here I am, writing to you in the hope you are able to give me some advice which will help.
Thanks for your time in reading this
Cheers
Glenn A. Firth

SOURCE: Receiver shuts down after loud bang

You said Unit is enclosed!! Does that mean it is inside something? Receivers & Amps need to have a clearance above them so air can circulate, otherwise you'll have an overheating problem. You also might have some of your wires crossed which will cause the Amp to shut down. Look at all your connections and make sure they're correct, including speaker wires.

No fix to this problem. When my T763 had the same symptoms I left it with the dealer who sent it on to service. It ended up being scrapped. So I'm afraid this is the end of your receiver unless your techies are better than the ones who worked on mine.

Receiver static


It could be just a lead, check your lead heads and inserts are clean.
Check along your leads and wires for any obvious kinks / tight bends / cuts / nicks / something sitting down on it or any damage to the wires.

It could be there is another electrical device nearby interfering at a electromagnetic level.

It could be just the dials / knobs need taking off and cleaning in behind. the pickups, you may not need to remove them just spray with electronic cleaner b3203b06-4ced-4fda-befd-44f385f97b7e.jpg this stuff is great for lots of different electrical cleaning problems.
Good luck

When the problem first started i'd punch in the cook time, the only way the microwave would run and heat is if i held up on the outside of the door. Two days later it just quit working all togethe


Call Lowe's to see if the warranty has run out. If still good, take it back. If not, call the manufacturer of the unit and see what the problem is. Sounds like the door support or hinge has weakened and the unit will not operate with the door slightly ajar. Unplug the unit for safety's sake until you find out what is wrong.

Its either not getting fuel, poss blocked mainjet, or float needle valve, do you have a constant flow of fuel from the tank, is the bike smoking exsessivly, sounding quieter than it used to do? Maybe the exhaust has become blocked, this was a common factor on this bike, remove exhaust look up exhaust port towards piston, with the piston at the top clean the port with a sharp object scrapeing away all the unburned carbon, start bike up without exhaust and check how it runs,

How can i upgrade my av 302 to becomes best as konzert av-502


Hi,
upgrade your 302 to 502 need to replaced the toroid transformer, set of output amplifier, set of electrolytic capacitor.
Purchasing of these parts one-by-one is much expensive rather that you buy a brad new Konzert AV-502. Also upgrading the unit is quite tech and need a lot of experienced in electronics.
Hope that it may help you.
Have a nice day.

The sound is distorted and overwhelmed by static


Depends what the real problem is.

Is it related to certain sources only - try new or reseated cables,swap it to a different input; single channel - swap to isolate; or certain controls that have become noisy? A shop might be able to get some tuner cleaner into them.
